Nixon Campaigns in San Francisco

Jan. 25, 1962 - Richard M. Nixon walked through the Mission district of San Francisco today bidding for votes in his campaign for Governor. The former Vice President stopped passers-by, shook hands, spoke a few words of Spanish, and generally left a trail of smiles. “He’s terrific” and “a great guy” were heard as the Republican candidate invaded the home city of Gov. Edmund G. Brown. Last night, the Democratic Governor assailed Mr. Nixon at a party dinner, in which the Governor announced his candidacy for re-election.
